Tropical Regions of South Asia


The Mango tree ranks among the most popular and well-known tree species in the South Asian tropics. It goes without saying though that the use of the fruit of the Mango tree is considerably higher than that of its wood. The most valuable wood for the veneer industry grows in Indochina, especially in Laos, as in some regions there the heartwood develops a dark color, often streaked with lighter or darker stripes. This is in contrast to the whitish yellow wood coming from its other growing regions.


In its growing regions, Mango is used as furniture wood for door and window frames, rudder blades and agricultural equipment. In the veneer industry, it is used exclusively for interior fittings due to its rarity and different characteristics from log to log.


The wood of the Mango tree is relatively hard – fairly comparable to Teak. When an adequate amount of hardwood is given, Mango veneer is extremely decorative, as it glistens in many brown and red shades and is often streaked with light, clearly de ned stripes. Unfortunately, Mango still is relatively unknown and is, therefore, only seldom used for furniture or interior fittings.


Working of the wood with all tools creates no problem. Both, glue thread stitching and glue splicing can be done without any difficulty.


No problem when drying is done slowly and carefully.


Mango takes all lacquers and oils problem-free.


Joints with glue, screws and nails are easy to produce and hold rmly.
